    Google Portal?

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) - Google Inc. on Thursday introduced a new option that will enable visitors to display more information on the online search engine leader's bare-bones home page, a departure that pushes the company a step closer to operating an Internet portal in the mold of rivals Yahoo and MSN.com.

    The feature, available at http://labs.google.com

    Since the Google toolbar has 8 links to it does this really surprise anybody. I have been waiting for it

    Just the next little attempt to capture mindshare for Google. So many other places offering this already type stuff but it'll probably have a few million signups just because... it's Gooooooooooooogle.

    The only thing Google is doing is consolidating all of their portal content into a portal-like structure.

    The content has been there, nothing has changed about that. It just never was organized into what they're attempting to do now.

    I just downloaded Google Talk. Looks basic but I'm sure it works great. Problem is, I don't have anyone on my contact list! hehe Anyone care to share? Also, if anyone would like a Gmail account, let me know, I'd be happy to invite.
